Since i was frustrated with updating to V10f, i've asked so many people to solve my problem...
i'm here in Hong Kong and i haven't got the OTA update for V10f yet..
so i finally find a solution about that

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1264289

it's from O2x section but i found that it works for P880 too (great work by felipemadox , not mine)

i just copy it here and for you all easier to know this method


| 1 |
Download these 3 apps: http://www.4shared.com/rar/Re4VCOAS/kdz-udpate.html (the original link is deleted, re-uploaded by RuedasLocas)

| 2 |
- Install B2CTools LG
- Extract the KDZ_FW_UPD_EN.zip (ex.: C:\KDZ\)
- Install msxml.msi (located \KDZ)
- Extract WindowsEnabler.zip to the same folder as KDZ (ex.: KDZ\WindowsEnabler)

| 3 |
Run LGMobile update (must be on your desktop) and install the usb drivers

| 4 |
Reebot your O2x in SW Upgrade mode (remove the battery, turn on the device and hold the vol - key)

dont turn the on/off button, just hold down volume and plug the cable in

| 5 |
Open the Windows "Device Manager" > Modems > disable the LGE Mobile USB Modem

| 6 |
Run as administrator KDZ_FW_UPD.exe

| 7 |
- Run as administrator Windows Enabler.exe
- After run the app, an icon will appear on your tray, single-click on the icon util the "ON" text appears over the icon


| 8 |
- Go back to KDZ, locate press on the yellow folder and locate the .kdz file that you want to flash

- In my case, Optimus 2x P990h, the o type must be "3GQCT" and phonemode "DIAG"



| 9 |
- Click on "Launch Software Update" and don't click on anything else
- WAIT util your phone reboots automatically (5-7 min) and unplug the cable

- Dont care about the errorlog, it's normal

If you got only bootloop after flash .kdz, just do a hard reset:
- press and hold [vol -] and [power] until you got the "android recovery figure" and wait until they reboot again.

----------------------------------------------------
tested that root will lose after updating the firmware through this method

p.s. my English isn't good at all, sorry for that
